Azerai readies debut of second hotel in Vietnam

December 2018

La Residence, Hue to re-emerge as latest property in Adrian Zecha’s new group.

Azerai, an emerging hospitality group led by hotelier Adrian Zecha, is planting another flag in the former imperial capital of Vietnam.

The historic hotel, to be known as Azerai La Residence, Hue, will celebrate an official opening in February after the most extensive renovation since the historic, 1930-built mansion was completely overhauled thirteen years ago. The 122-room hotel’s aesthetic affirms Azerai’s devotion to simplicity and elegance, and reconfirms the brand’s commitment to affordable luxury.

Anchored by a 1930's colonial mansion and two complementary wings built in 2005, the hotel commands 200 metres of frontage along the fabled Perfume River, with views of the imposing Flagtower Bastion and the 1804-built Citadel on the river’s north bank. Poised between the landmark Hue Railway Station and a string of colonial era buildings, the hotel’s bowed facade and long horizontal lines are testaments to its art deco roots and enduring appeal.

Azerai La Residence, Hue is a complement to the 60-room Azerai Can Tho, which debuted on the Mekong Delta this past spring. The name Azerai was inspired by the initials of Adrian Zecha and the Persian word caravanserai, a resting place usually around a central courtyard.

Plans call for a number of additional properties within Vietnam, and beyond.

Azerai opens in Vietnam's Mekong Delta

January 2018

Azerai offers an affordable luxury resort experience in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta, introducing travellers to the region’s timeless river culture.

Situated on a private islet on the Hau River, a main tributary of the Mekong River, Azerai provides elegant, relaxed accommodations and a full-service resort experience, while introducing travellers to the region’s charming, centuries-old river culture.  
 
The fourth largest city in Vietnam, Can Tho is the leading city of the Mekong Delta. An urban hub for the farming and fishing communities of the Delta region, the city remains steeped in a heartwarming traditional river culture wherein the Mekong River continues to play an important role in daily life. Locally, the Delta is known as ‘Cuu Long’, or ‘Nine Dragons’, referring to the nine tributaries of the Mekong which fan through the region, enriching the soil before emptying into the Vietnam Sea.  
 
Azerai is located on Au Islet, a 21-hectare sanctuary in the middle of the Hau River. The islet is home to native mangroves and banyan trees, both integral parts of the Mekong Delta ecosystem. Can Tho Bridge, Southeast Asia’s longest stayed-bridge, spans the waterway to northeast, creating a dramatic backdrop. Ninh Kieu Quay and the Hau River’s languid waters embrace the remaining shoreline. Though only one kilometre from the city centre, the islet’s natural beauty and tranquillity provide a dramatic contrast to the hustle and bustle of Can Tho city.
